My copier makes a noisy sound

Every time I turn my copier on, it makes a loud chainsaw-like sound. It seems like a gear got stuck and it feeds paper only halfway and crumples away before it reaches the drum area.

Could be gears or also a piece of paper in fuser causing a jam that is stopping the fuser from turning also check the "fingers" are not stuck up or are off their springs
fingers help separate paper from the roller but can cause jamming if not in correct position

Check the crumpled paper. If it has an image, it has reached the drum and is crumpling at the fuser unit (part that gets hot). If that is the case the fuser gear and drive gear need to be replaced.

Broken plastic gear in lower paper feed

That sounds like a fairly simple fix - using your printer's model number, do an online search for replacement parts. If you're fairly handy, you should be able to do the job yourself. If you have a friend or relative who's handy, they should be able to do it. A typical commercial shop will probably charge quite a lot of money (possibly more than the price of a replacement printer) to do the job.

Post the exact error message indicated on the printer LCD. 13.01, 02 paper feed issues, worn rollers or jammed paper inside of paper feed assembly.13.05, 06 fusing assembly issues, broken sensor flag in fuser or worn busing on fusing rollers (fusing assembly will be noisy or making grinding sound.) If this the issue being noisy, the fusing assembly has to be replaced along with one of the drive gears, about a 30 min. of work.

I was in the process of making copies, when my Epson RX700 suddenly made a loud grinding noise. It then stopped working and displayed an error message: Scanner error occurred...Please see...

There are two drives in the printer. One moves the print head (cartridge) back and forth across the paper. Check to see if the "rubber band" drive belt is slipping or broken off. There is also a roller motor which feeds the paper. This has nylon gears which can make a grinding sound if one of the gears gets stuck. Make sure there are no pieces of paper stuck in the gears.

Not feeding paper very noisy whin it tries shoes to be jammed

You could have a paper jam that's jamming the gears that turn to feed the paper. Make sure there's no paper inside jamming up the roller bar. The other possibility is that you have a stripped gear, that is chattering when it tried to drive the paper feed roller.

Make sure you get an estimate if you get it repaired, since the cost of repair can often justify just going ahead and buying a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Keeps saying no paper Makes loud clicking noise

The clicking sounds seems to be made by the small gears on the side of the tray. When you move the gears, it should push a plate beneath the paper upwards, and the paper with it, allowing the paper to be feed.

I'm not sure what I did to fix it. I removed the paper and cleaned both feeding rectangles (to the front of the tray -- nearest you). One is underneath the paper and the other is in the front, center.

I then made sure that, when I move the biggest gear (the one that isn't round) that the paper moves upwards.
